Question about GE Washing Machines
I have a GE Super Capacity 6 cycle heavy duty washing machine. The machine will start by filling up like it is supposed to with water. Then it just stops. I move the dial to the wash cycle and i can hear the cycle wanting to start and can hear the electrical contacts trying to hit. When i move it to spin and rinse they both work fine. Can u help please.
I think you may have a stopped up pump does it drain the water out if not it will not spin. A putty knife inserted 2 inches in from each side will release the spring catches and gently pull on front as you release sprins then look to the bottom right hand side and there is the pump clamp the tub to pump hose or **** water out with a shop vac take off tub to pump hose and then two 3/8 in screws that hold down the pump turn over where you can look in the pump may have an obstruction as always disconnect power before service.

On an older model washer, you probably have a bad water valve. (hot water solenoid coil electrically " open ") Newer models, now there's a can of worms. Some models use thermistatically controled water valves to limit water temps, so you may not be able to get true hot water. Also, if you are checking the temp as the machine fills, some models will only fill with cold if the lid is open. (safety feature) The only way to see what is really going on is to fill the machine with cold and use a thermometer to check the water temp, then, pump that out and fill (with the lid closed) with hot and check to see if that temp is higher. As stated previously, water temp may not really be " HOT " but may be warmer than " COLD ". That may be as good as you will be able to do, as all manufacturers are trying to reduce energy consumption. Thank your government.

SOURCE: water leaking during rinse cycle
If your TOP LOADING Whirlpool washer is leaking, the following link explains how to remove the exterior washer case in order to accurately inspect the washer interior components for the source of your leak:
If the leak is more like a constant drip, a common source of leaks with Whirlpool manufactured top loaders is a leaking drain pump. These pumps are not serviceable and if damaged, must be replaced. The following link explains how:
Don't forget to check all drain hose connections under the washer and the center tub seal.
Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:
Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. The first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
